Brunch is now being offered seven days a week from 10:30 or 11 a.m. – depending on the market – to 3 p.m. at all 52 restaurants across the country, the chain announced. On Saturdays and Sundays, customers can choose from a 12 dish menu and Monday through Friday, customers can choose from a more limited menu of five top five favorite brunch dishes.
The new menu focuses on classic brunch items and infuses Maggiano’s Italian roots.
“We were very purposeful in approaching this new brunch menu,” said Larry Konecny, vice president of innovation and restaurant support for Maggiano’s Little Italy. “We looked at our Guest’s favorite menu items – such as our meatballs and crab cakes and thought, ‘How can we enhance traditional brunch dishes by adding our own Maggiano’s Italian-American twist?”
From there, Maggiano’s expanded a few favorite menu items with brunch in mind. The core of the new menu centers around five Italian translations of the 100-year-old U.S. classic, eggs benedict:
Nueske’s Smoked Ham Benedict $14.95*. English Muffin, Poached Eggs, Hollandaise Sauce, Crispy Vesuvio Potatoes.
The Meatball Benedict $14.95. English Muffin, Poached Eggs, Oven-Dried Roma Tomatoes, Hollandaise Sauce, Crispy Vesuvio Potatoes.
